Bill’s ancient coin discoveries – 1700s-1800s coins gallery

Bill is a keen metal detectorist, and during his time detecting has located a sizable collection of ancient coins stretching through the ages, including this gallery of coins dating from 1700AD to 1899AD.

Bill has been detecting for years – and he even has his own Signature Metal Detector, which he designed to be especially appealing to newcomers and children looking to get involved with metal detecting.

Bill is a regular and renowned detectorist, and has a significant number of discoveries and finds to his name – including some that have been donated to museums. Bill’s finds include coins and even ancient artefacts, as well as Tokens and Jettons, with many in remarkable condition.

This collection is part of a larger collection of coins from 1100AD to 1899AD, many of which are in amazing condition.

It’s a passion that sees Bill regularly out walking and detecting, and he has even written a book – Bill Wyman’s Treasure Islands – which is the who, what, when, where, why and how of historical treasures found in Great Britain and Ireland.

  1. Hi Bill , looks like anything you do turns into gold , I love it !!!

  2. Love archaeology and the British Museum. And great music. I just returned from holiday up north. The Jorvic centre had a great collection of coins. Including silver from the first central bank in Mesopotamia. We even listened to the Stones on Spotify on the drive. But 11 year old kids are more into Ariane Grande. Sigh
